Our chapter provides partial scholarships to AFP Conferences and educational events to eligible members. To qualify for a scholarship, applicants must be members of the AFP Greater Arizona Chapter, be currently employed by a non-profit organization, and not have received an AFP scholarship within the past year. Scholarship opportunities are publicized throughout the year via email and newsletter.

Helping to support continuing education in fundraising and philanthropy is at the core of what we do and how we serve.

As a demonstration of these values, we are pleased to introduce the new Missie D’Aunoy Mentoring Program Scholarship, in celebration of the life of Missie D’Aunoy who passed away on March 3, 2013. Missie was a long-time member of AFP, past president of our chapter, and served as a committee co-chair in our chapter’s Professional Fundraising Mentoring Program. A wonderful teacher and friend, she touched the lives of so many people and will be remembered for her smile, soft southern voice, and the energy she brought to everything she did. Missie was also involved with and held dear to her heart many nonprofit organizations in the Valley including Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona, St. Vincent de Paul School, and the Diocese of Phoenix. We at AFP Greater Arizona are proud to honor Missie through this special scholarship.
